If I'm not mistaken
You already posted this exact runner dude sequence before. The only difference was some text and an intro....If this isn't a repost, then I highly suggest you work up some variety because otherwise I'm going to keep thinking it's the same thing.
It's alright animation. The figure is a bit rigid. I suggest going over some running tutorials and mimicking the motions to help you better understand fluidity in the characters movements.
Totally agree on this one...CS4 was most definitely full of stupidity. Ever since Adobe took over flash, the UI has been going down into the abyss of adobes amazing ability to make the worse UI's ever. Adobe can make incredible stuff, but they can't wrap their heads around the simple idea of KISS.
And have you noticed if you do 3D rotations on sub clips then rotate the parent clip it reeeeeaally doesn't behave how you'd expect it?
Anywho, good animation : ) I enjoyed it.
yes, i did notice the whole rotations thing. thanks for teh review... and yeah, CS4 is essentially flash 8 with some extra crap added.
Is you gave up this project and decided to not finish. Or you needed some glorification to continue?
You should continue the well animated part and finish the song and not try to win out on the ADD randomness nations support. It really means something to finish a full project and is far more inspirational : )
I'll say the part that had effort in it was actually decent.
You know too much, I am sorry but you must be executed.
got some work
Well, it seems you put in the effort of working with camera angles more than you did actually animating what was on stage. It was apparent you did not spend much time on walk sequences and general basic motions of the characters themselves.
Work on making your figures less rigid. They had the feeling of a second rate physics engine that gets the "E" for effort grade.
Slow down on your project. Take your time and work on detailing. Animating unfortunately improves exponentially with detailing.
Good effort, keep going and you'll get up there : ) even past stickmen potentially.
Thanks for the review and tips :)
It's not flash
Just did movie clip editing. While it was good editing and entertaining in some weird fashion, it still was not anything related to flash ability : /
It hurts, but I can't vote high for it because of that. Try putting that humor into something actually flash made...(shoot even use the videos but use flash to do traces to make it vector graphics at the very least XD)
Keep it going
It's great to see things like this show up within these circles. A better message that is pointing to reality and toward the truth behind this world. Don't ever lose the fortitude to want to post these kind of messages in any realm of your life : )
It was a great song choice, and the animation had signs of some genuine effort put into it. But as a critic, I say you still have much to work on. Work on your body structure drawing next. May be watch some animation involving well proportioned well drawn characters (a lot of disney movies do this, as well as many animes) and look at the distinct lines they draw to give impression of the human form. A great start on the human form is the hand IMO. Got some catching up to do on Josh, but I'm sure you can get to that point if you keep it up : )
If you wanted higher votes
You forgot to grab a programmer and place a preloader of some sort. Watching it in spurts mad me frustrated and didn't let me get the full effect.
I am very pleased with the creativity of the whole idea.
Unfortunately, I was displeased with the obvious effort on some parts and the almost complete ignoring of other elements. You can definitely animate and have the ability to make things move fairly proper. You should have at least animated a little bit of walking sequences for the sheep.
I understand the process is completely tedious and overbearingly burdensome on patience, but if you would have pushed just a little longer to do the all important touch ups, this could have really been something much greater.
Other than that though, I'm still happy that you put some good effort into it and made a unique feeling idea.
I really was impressed by the machinery and the change in camera angle with them. Was that all animated or was a 3D program used? It kind of caught me off guard with the rest of the animation...
Well the animation makes up for the lack of english! Great job on it. Just try to get a translator. The lack of proper english hurt the project considerably.
Great small short idea :P
But the bullet needs to be black...It was extremely hard to keep track of.
Other than that, yay?
